For most parents of little boys, just the meer mention of that name brings a smile to their face.

Connor has been absolutely enthralled with his trucks and trains lately so I figured that he needed more of a track or place to play with his new favorite toys. Connor needing more space equals Mom and Dad giving up more of what used to a some-what organized home to chaos, toys, and a lot of fun.

We don't have enough room for a full train table so you can imagine my excitement when I discovered that you can purchase a playboard (the top of the train table) by itself. After I learned this, I immediately launched an online investigation of how much Thomas the Train toys cost. Shortly thereafter I turned to Craigslist.

And, we found a winner.

YIPPEE Connor! Our Thomas stuff provided hours of entertainment and now that "Thomas Table" has turned into the Star Wars Lego station!!!! FYI, walmart sells a great train table for cheap with a pull-out drawer under it for all the stuff. Ours always went in Cooper's room. Also, Melissa and Doug wooden train accessories and track fit with Thomas stuff and come MUCH cheaper. But a few of the real deal trains and a station or two and then head to Melissa and Doug to complete the set! ;)

Steven still plays with his Thomas stuff all the time and he's almost 5 now. Open ye wallet! I'm pushing the move into Star Wars toys though :)
